Windows v Linux security: the real facts  View Printable Version 
Sunday, October 24 2004 @ 09:53 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom The Register:

Considering the publicity that has surrounded - and, despite super new security-focused Service Packs, continues to surround - Windows security issues, Microsoft's determination to demonstrate that Linux is less secure than Windows shows a certain chutzpah. The company has however had some support here; Forrester, for example, provides some numbers that can be used to support the contention that Microsoft flaws are less severe, less numerous and fixed faster. And although there's a general readiness among users to believe that Windows is a security disaster area, there's also a reasonable amount of support for the view that Linux would get just as many security issues if it had anything like Windows' user base.

Using Firefox's mozex extension to call an external mail program  View Printable Version 
Friday, October 15 2004 @ 12:24 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Newsforge:

I recently moved from Mozilla to Firefox 1.0PR for Web browsing on my Fedora Core 1 Linux desktop system. On that platform, Firefox doesn't do anything with mailto: links by default; it just prints an error message if you click on one. However, a Firefox extension called mozex allows you to use any external mail program for mailto: links in Firefox.

How SCO launched an open source company  View Printable Version 
Friday, October 08 2004 @ 03:53 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Newsforge:

Jason Macer never really cared what operating system was running on his servers when the Dallas area businessman's Web hosting resale business peaked with 26 servers last March. But Macer found out that lots of folks did care, and were leaving him because of it. It was not Windows that was the problem, it was SCO. Macer's hosting vendor, EV1 Servers.net, had signed on for SCO's Linux user license. Macer's customers reacted by seeking hosting elsewhere, cutting his business down to just two servers.

"[Customers] said they can't support companies that support SCO," recalled Macer. But he saw an opportunity in his loss, and has launched an all-open source colocation and dedicated service provider in OSI Hosting, which touted the addition of seven new datacenters last month.

Rendezvous with the Desktop  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, July 06 2004 @ 07:29 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Open for Business:

This past week a number of exciting developments toward the popularization of Open Source desktops occurred. Novell heralded the arrival of Mono 1.0. Mandrakesoft announced the acquisition of a French IT services firm, further indicating its return to financial health. Real Networks inked deals to bundle Helix and Real Players on major GNU/Linux desktops. Out of the noise and clammer, nevertheless, there are two announcements that I believe are the best tickets to moving the GNU/Linux desktop forward, and they both had a name other than Red Hat, Novell or Mandrakesoft attached to them. They both involved Apple.

Interview with MySQL's Alex Roedling  View Printable Version 
Monday, June 21 2004 @ 06:51 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom OSNews:

Today we features a mini-Q&A with Alex Roedling, MySQL's Senior Product Manager, about all things MySQL, the competition, technology, licensing and more.

1. The new mySQL license is said to not be so compatible with PHP and other software that mysql works together. Is this the case?

Alex Roedling: MySQL offers licensing that is compatible with the licensing terms of most software. MySQL AB has two licensing options:

- For software with proprietary licensing, MySQL offers a proprietary license.
- For use with Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) such as Linux and PHP, MySQL is available under the GNU General Public License (GPL).Some FLOSS licenses (e.g. BSD-like licenses used by PHP and Apache) are not compatible with the GPL. To allow for greater compatibility with FLOSS licenses, MySQL provides a special exception to the terms of the GPL. This enables non-GPL software like PHP and Apache to use MySQL.

Linux ensnares another European city  View Printable Version

Contributed by: lacidar

General NewsBergen, Norway, has opted to replace Windows and Unix machines with Linux on servers for its schools and city databases and could later put the open-source operating system on desktop machines.

The city chose Linux because it costs less, improves reliability and doesn't lock the government into purchasing one company's products, city Chief Technology Officer Ole-Bjorn Tuftedal said in an interview.
